Any of you guys heard of a programming language by the name of "turing". It was a very basic thing I learned a couple years ago in high school. It was a great thing to start with because it is really easy and you can build on from it.

 

For example if you wanted text then you simplify write: put "hi"

 

And it will write hi.

No not really. Basically a programming language to help you get started. The most you could do with it would be to make a simple game like PacMan. But I remember the thing was full of bugs. But it is really old and there hasn't been an update for it in around 25 years or so.

I heard about the language but never got to learn or use it. I think the reason it never became popular was that it could not prove that it could handle complex programming tasks and environment. It's sad to see that the company has closed down but then even much bigger companies have been closed or acquired by bigger corporations.
